. we've got two reports. weather channel storm tracker jim cantore on the out of control gas lines in northern new jersey. and our kate kelly in new york harbor. thats go, g s ggas got to come pump some place. most of it will be by barge. jim, are you getting a '70s feeling out there? i've seen the lines. just driving up here to global headquarters. what's going on? >> reporter: well, remember back then, larry, we were talking about ands that got, what, 7 to maybe 11 or 12 miles to the gallon. so getting that gas once you got it didn't go very far. that's for sure. look behind me here. this is actually a pretty well oiled machine here, no pun intended. off in the distance see yet another tanker. they've already put 25,000 gallons in the ground and continue to pump it out tonight. lines have not gotten any shorter as you can imagine. when people find out how well this is going the lines are going to get even longer. the officers over here, they're taking the traffic and putting them in the lines so nobody has to get confused and honk horns at anybody else. then you can see here wher
never believed it, and now that i'm here -- [ laughter ] >> stephanie: jim says it's the panic room, because i'm dating jody foster. okay. how is it going? >> great. >> stephanie: i was just on her . . . set. >> i hear she has a nice set. >> stephanie: that rumor is long gone. i'm just trying to pathetically prop it up. david crosby hello. >> i hope he doesn't mind my references to turkey basters. >> stephanie: stop it. >> jacki schechner not in the current news center, but right there. >> we have 6 million homes without power, long lines at gas stations, and president obama is staying on top of all of the storm recovery efforts but facing the reality that we have an election. >> stephanie: i think his surrogates like chris christie are doing a good job. >> right. as if his plate is not full enough, the president is going to stay in touch with fema. last week, big endorsement from colin powell, now the obama campaign is using the four-star general in an ad airing in ten states. oh -- >> housing is starting to pick up. the president saved the auto industry, and t
know what dixicrast did to intimidate. they were known as jim crow. what we have going on in the 21st century in 2012 is jim crow's cousin, james crow esquire. this is what people need to know. they have planned this for months. this has been going on for months under the radar. it's now out in the open. two, i suspect that t they'veee scott and others will probably keep finding out and we're lucky to find it out just a few days before the election. >> absolutely. >> and finally, reverend sharpton, i will say this again. this is where you tell people, get out of my face because, remember, none of these people have legal authority. they have no legal authority to stop you from voting and that's what you've got to remember. just simply tell them to get the you know what out of my face and go in there and vote. >> now, we started seeing this in wisconsin, now iowa and elsewhere. scott, some liberal bloggers have suggested that project orca could lead in this sophisticated apparatus that we're talking about to voter suppression. give you an example. one blogger, nate samuel downs, quote,
other people worry about their own country. we have not problems in this country. >> jim, did you have anything to say? >> yes, i do have one question i can ask, it was george w. bush who wanted to do the libyan intervention, would you have supported it then? >> yes. >> okay, let's do something related to military and foreign policy and that is the issue of military spending. many on the left criticize the right for wanting to spend on the military print mitt romney has proposed that we spend $2 trillion in additional spending. lots of things, wanting to balance a budget, the annual deficit runs between one and $1.5 billion annually. i will start with you, bill. even with obama and his foreign policy, spending keeps going up. >> some folks don't talk about this in a great way. it is the kind of thing where most people -- [inaudible] you don't want to approach it strictly from a numbers basis. by the same token, throwing money at national security and problems it's not necessarily something that's going to solve the problem. >> unless you're ben bernanke. [laughter] does because it come
. >> it may be slightly more likely than jim mussina's plan a year ago to expand the map into arizona and georgia, but not a lot more. gwen: the other question i have for your guys, is so how late are we going to be up on tuesday? >> i think we'll know by midnight. >> you think? >> yep. >> wow, that is very good. i hope that is true. i don't feel like we've known at midnight for a long time. >> in 2008 we did. but this tracks with 2004 where it's very close ain't comes down to ohio and there are all these rules about provision nal ballots an when they can be counted and how long you can -- i think that the morning of november 7th, we will have an answer. gwen: quickly, jackie? >> i'm going to predict and hope for an early night. i'm not a journalist that likes this much drama. >> yogi bear said predicts are hard especially about the future. but i agree with john, this is going break one way or the other. the dime's not going to land on its side and we'll know by midnight. gwen: that was not even -- >> what about you? >> gwen: i will be at this very table and i will be here as long as
and the presidential race, editor of the daily beast and joy an read. jim, i haven't talked to you in a while. but i made a mistake, it was jane bern who benefited from the machine out there. tell us about what your experience is as a general reporter to what weather can do to elections. >> chris, i think as we said before it takes snow and i'm a native new yorker, and very weak response to a huge snowstorm. he lost in chicago in 1979. in the early '90s, a couple of washington bad storms, marion barry's stock plummeted. >> give me the reason for that. why do people have a big scorecard in their heads and hearts about weather and how politicians handle it? >> because if they are deemed to be responsible and affected and efficient, they are allotted. remember, herbert hoover won in 1928 because of what was deemed to be good performance as commerce secretary overseeing the response of the mississippi river flooding. the next year, huey long wins governor ship of mississippi. and in 1994 benefitting from a huge earthquake but the opposite is what we have seen in new york city, chicago, and washington wh
website, c-span.org. jim is in orlando, florida. he's on our line for independents. jim, you're optimistic about the economy. why is that? caller: i'm optimistic after the election. i think that a lot of companies have been holding out hiring this year. i think it all comes back to the money. and when i say the money, a lot of the billionaires, when they see that their taxes are going from 14% to 36%, they're going to do whatever they can to make sure that the president looks bad as far as this year. when you look historically, the first quarter of the year is usually slow. we had a good first quarter. in the second two quarters, jobs have been anemic. i think the last two or three years, we slowly climbed out of this mess, and it will take, as clinton said, another four years to get out of it. but i do see some positives. host: jim, do you really think that business owners are going to risk profits and losses based on trying to make the president look bad? caller: i don't think business owners are. i think that big corporations that have billionaire stockholders -- if my taxes were going
know, it depends on the scientists. the leading edge scientists like jim hanson, kevin trenberth jim mccarthy, the ones that i think are right out at the cutting edge have been saying this. but you're quite right that many scientists have been very cautious and science has a cautious culture. you could almost say a conservative culture. their peer review process discourages them from even thinking about going out on a limb. and so they -- they are inherently cautious and conservative. but the evidence is now so overwhelming. you know, in the last ten years you showed some of the statistics but there there's an analysis of the extreme hot temperatures on the surface of the earth. they're now 100 times more common than they were just 30 years ago. and it is these extremely hot temperatures that are responsible for the increased evaporation, the increased water vapor in the air the increased drought. and remember this is hardly the only climate related disaster that we've had this year. 65% of the united state
spoke with the former head of the republican party of florida, a guy named jim greer who is in his own trouble over charges about some illegal money thing that he was doing, but when he was running the party he told me that republican consultants came to him and said, we want to craft a bill that would get rid of early voting if we could, or severely cut it, because in the words of these consultants, according to jim greer, all it does is bring every african-american out from under a rock, that's a quote, and get them to vote for democrats. they don't vote for us, it doesn't help us. so the republican legislature which in 2010 became more tea party, more conservative, there's no margin in it for them to increase access to in-person early voting. what they did is passed a law that didn't touch absentee voting, which republicans tend to dominate in, but severely limited the early vote. just to give you some numbers, you're talking about there were 96 hours, there are 96 hours this year total to vote. there were 120 hours in 2008. and already in the state, 3.46 million people have voted.
long sinus and headache relief. >>> the search for victims goes on. cnn's jim clancy is searching with u.s. national guard troops. >> reporter: a sometimes forceful systematic search for survivors. >> every time we clear the street -- >> reporter: dozens of members of the u.s. army and air force national guard joined members of the ocean county's prosecutor office to probe seemingly abandoned homes on long beach island's community. in distressed situation they forcibly opened homes to call out for survivors. the prosecutors are on hand because they have jurisdiction if any bodies are uncovered. but in most cases it was a straightforward call to ask if anyone was inside. >> national guard. this part of the mission is search and rescue. pretty much nobody has been here. so we've been trying to see if any residents that have stayed over during the hurricane survived. that's basically what we're looking for here, any survivors. >> reporter: homes already ripped open by superstorm sandy were searched inside and out while these guard teams from new jersey kept a sharp look out for signs
. dan came in here in 2006 after being gone for many, many years to challenge jim walsh. >> moderator: okay, do you want to come in now? >> what's the question? >> moderator: you have not been the subject of the attack ads, but you have a positive message you want out. you have a 60 seconds on an issue of your choosing. >> thank you. i'm a central new york stative born and raised in syracuse, my parents from poland in the 1980s, they came here basically believing that this is the kind of country where you work hard, you can create a good life for your family, and that's not the case anymore. the american dream is far out of reach of too many people so what i support is the green new deal, public investment to put people back to work meeting today's challenges. that means addressing unmet community needs whether it's updating our hundred-year-old sewers in syracuse, developing energy for real energy independence. it support these policies to put, you know, the communities and put money in working people's pockets. i think we need new leadership. i said it before. my opponents represent
is trying to keep voters focused on the economy telling them he could do better than president obama. jim acosta is traveling with the romney campaign. >> we've been traveling by bus over the last few days, ohio and iowa, one thing we've heard, he's been debuting this new theme, he is the agent, he is the candidate of big change and the president is just more of what he calls the status quo. one thing we can also report is the romney campaign is right now sort of riding a wave of momentum, some recent polls, not just nationally but across several swing states have shown romney gaining some traction and getting very close to overtaking the president in several key swing states and both nationally. now, the romney campaign did put out a memo earlier in the week throwing cold water on one ohio state poll they took issue with saying it wasn't properly calibrated but they are also at the same time touting a new "washington post" poll showing mitt romney leading the president nationally and doing very well among independents. at the same time we should p point out that along this tour he has hi
lead the entire year and looks to be in good shape to be the first republican governor since jim martin was elected in 1980. so it is shaping up as a very good republican year in the state. host: you've also got quite a contest going on in north carolina's 11th district. tell us about that. guest: we had -- let me jump back a little bit. in 2010 we had the first republican legislature since 1800's. and it came just as redistricting happened. it meant that you had new lines drawn for congressional districts. and so the -- with these new lines right now we have an 8/7 breakdown, 8 democrats, 7 republicans, i think that's right. no it's 7/6. but the republicans think they can pick up four seats because of the new district lines. if so that would be the biggest pick up of any state in the country. it seems there are certain to pick up two seats based on unfavorable new districts. democratic congressmen decided not to seek reelection brad miller in the 13th and in the 11th. and larry kissell in the 8th district in charlotte area and that goes down to the south carolina border is in a really
. break the law? since when is voting breaking the law? decades ago we faced jim crow and the polls. today it's fewer hours and longer lines. but the goal is the same. voter suppression. joining me now is former florida governor charlie crist. he's now an independent. tonight he's introducing former president clinton at an obama rally. governor, thanks so much for your time tonight. >> reverend, it's great to be with you, reverend al. thank you. >> now, let me ask you directly. wouldn't extending voting hours be the right thing for governor scott to do here? you did it in 2008 as the governor of florida and you are republican. what would be wrong with scott doing that today? >> there would be nothing wrong with it, reverend. it would be the right thing to do. it's a precious, cherished right and all of us want to have an opportunity to exercise. yesterday i was in miami guard dense in north dade county and the wait was 2 1/2 to three hours. it's unconscienceable to let that go on. the people of florida deserve better and they deserve a right to vote. >> i have been down in florida with the
civil rights bill. we remember him today as one of the last of the jim crow demagogue. he was. he was that. he was one of the last. but when we forget about strofm he was also one of the first of the sun belt conservative. what do i mean by that? what is that? the sun belt it's one of the big stories that is the flow of jobs and resource and population from the states of the northeast and the midwest to the south and the southwest. in the older post world war ii people. they recruiting industries. they were passing right to work laws. receiving lots of fundings from the federal government to build military at the time when the united states was involved in the cold war against the soviet union. so states like mississippi but states like georgia and texas and florida and southern california and arizona and north carolina are being transformed in the postworld war two period by the historic shift as the period of the sun belt dominance. if you think about every president elected from 1963 comes from state of the sun belt. lyndon johnson from texas and richard nixon from california.
angles. we have jim cantor e, he's hole up at the ritz bar down at battery park. we're journalists. >> mike seidel in hell's kitchen. >> exactly. >> let's get right to the weather. the beginning of sandy's effects are arriving up and down the mid-atlantic. winds are expected to reach 90 miles an hour, and already those living near the water have been forced evacuate. today it's expected to hook west and take aim at the northeast coast, leaving tens of millions of people just hours now to prepare. the entire new york city transit system is shut down. schools are closed along with those in baltimore, boston and washington, d.c. meteorologist bill karins is here with the very latest on the hurricane. bill. >> good morning to you, mika. and this storm is on schedule. nothing has changed. if anything, it's a little stronger than what we thought it would be at this point. and it's going to be moving on shore within the next 12 to 18 hours. this will be a 24-hour period for areas from the northern mid-atlantic, washington, d.c., all the way through boston that a lot of us will never forge
the republican team, so we got to be sure did jim it is also recollected. he is doing a great job in washington. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. we need josh mandel in washington. we need him now. president obama the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them like the stimulus package he said would result in all kinds of new jobs. that has not happened. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that has not happened. the good news that we have somebody who is running for president that has the know-how. he has the experience. he has got the experience, the record, and he knows how to work with democrats, republicans cannot independents alike to address the challenges we face as a country, and that is why we need mitt romney in washington to fix what is broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here economy. autos. talk what go said barack obama that said were a few wars. one was about the auto industry. he said, you want to take those companies to bankruptcy. i supported a rescue package for the autos, but what obama said was not true. it was barack obam
of ohio. 5:30 p.m. eastern. now to jim next in franklin, pennsylvania, republican. caller: i highly disagree with s estimatee -- his that the benghazi affair is not the october surprise. i really believe if the electric knew all -- if the electorate knew all the facts, how could a president, the secretary of state, and the secretary of defense sit and watch what happened in real time and not send aid to those people, if everybody understood that is what happened. then they went out and made up a story that it was some unruly mob when it was clearly a planned attack by al qaeda. guest: i think there are a lot of problems with that. there were not watching in real time. i don't want to get into the specifics of the actual and got the attack or anything around it. however, i think there's something important to be done. the full story will be reported. there will be investigations both by the house of representatives and by the state department. republicans to control the house of representatives, by the way. we look forward to those things coming out. whether or not expect a robust su
,000 debate, first debate jim lehrer asked george w. bush, tell us one good thing about bill clinton. >> fema an james lee whit, and the tragedy of gorge w bush's administration, fema and michael brown at the time of katrina. barack obama rebuilt it. and we are seeing it it work and respond. >> woodruff: do you think the storm could be making that much of a difference. >> i think the perception and you see activity and you see the chris christie thing. people are saying why is christie doing this, for his own mattal ambitions. >> i don't think there is anything like that when you are the governor of a state, a state you love that is in your heart and soul you feel an intense sense of stewardship. and when it gets wallopped by the storm the poll particulars seems irrelevant at this point. and as christie said, i don't care about the politics. if he is going to help me with my state, he is going to help the people of my state, then i'm grateful and i will work with him. so i think it is as simple as that. and i think he has been perfectly willing to hold the view that he's not a good steward of
with it but they did. >> the question -- >> karl rove. and jim i guess. >> with the national association of independent colleges and universities. [inaudible] i want to be mindful that it's national policy -- a lot of students have access to look through a window. many of them went to school and private colleges and universities. do the best josh of getting the students through. those who graduate for four years is for sale. so -- what's the bester investment? >> if i had had my drutsdzers i would be spending 10% on higher education. in my group i think history tells us that's the level in which the best performing economying in the world typically -- >> where are we now? >> we're now about 8. we used to bt 10. we're now about . korea the single most successful economy of the last 50 years is at ten and has been at ten since it was an incredibly poor country. and so to me that's what i would do. and so all i'm saying is we have -- i would start with the public system. i think that's what government should do. and but in my view, i would also provide assistance to very income dependent assistance to pri
in the state of ohio. so tune in to seize and then at 5:40 eastern time. we will go to jim next republican collar. go ahead, jim. >> caller: i highly disagree with reid on his that the benghazi affair is not the october surprise. i really believe if the debate could they knew all the facts of what happened there how could the president and secretary of state and secretary of defense said and watch what happened in real time if everybody understood that's what happened to me the story was a plan attached by al qaeda. >> guest: they were not watching in real time to realize i don't want to get into the specifics of the actual benghazi attack or anything around it. however there is reporting to be done. the full story as it were will be reported in the investigations both by the house of representatives and by the state department. so the republican controlled house of representatives by the way. so we look forward to those things coming out. whether or not it is the october surprise, i'm pretty sure it is not. i'm sure most voters are not paying attention to it. so we will see how this all p
of new hampshire with the senior adviser to the romney campaign. jim merrill, joining us from new hampshire. if i can begin with statistics -- the unemployment rate is 5.7%. president obama won by 9%. abc news says this -- he did not just eke out a win, he dominated. he carried every county in the state, besting mccain by 10 points. given the economy is not as weak as it is in other states, the margin by which he won in 2008, how is the governor responding in the state of new hampshire? guest: first of all, let me make it clear -- mitt romney will win new hampshire. the statistics he cited are accurate, but these last four years have been difficult not only for the people of new hampshire, but for the nation. we have seen unemployment rise, skyrocketing spending, government programs out of control. what you see today, the voters of this date, what you are correct that the unemployment rate has not been as tough as some of the other parts of the country, there is anxiety here. that is why they're looking at mid romney closely. he has a plan and this president does not. host: look a
from jim on twitter -- uses direct democracy by any other name is mob rule. guest: direct democracy is a wonderful thing and it is a terrible thing. it came about and the united states back at the turn of the last century because state legislatures in many states were just terribly corrupt. there were owned by corporations. mainly the railroad industry and the mining industry in western states. citizens had no voice. they couldn't achieve the reforms they wanted to achieve because there were contrary to the interests of these corporations. that we are dictating to state legislators with the should be doing. the initiative process can about any way that allows citizens to go around government and to reforms when government wouldn't do it. i think it is still there for that. i think in the states that have the initiative process, and remember that is only 24 of them, voters did not want to get rid of the initiative process, even if they know that the is the process is sometimes corrected. and it is definitely vulnerable to big money and vulnerable to corruption and all of these things
mcconnell who seemed to be the biggest enemy last time now realizes he can't beat the jim demint forces by being negative, he's got to get something done. he's not a right-winger. mcconnell's got to get in play and start being productive. it does take more than the president if he gets reelected. there has to be some good will and that's what i'm hoping coming out this week. a little sense we're all in this together against something we didn't bring about and neither side this bad weather. that's my hope. >> all right. >> that's a new definition of hope. >> that's a good hope to have. to tell you the truth. >> as it compared to four years ago. it makes sense, though. >> i don't think we have any choice moving forward. and we shouldn't -- politicians shouldn't do what they've been doing over the past four years. like chris said, if the president gets reelected, he's got to deal with the republicans, republicans have to deal with him. >> but -- that -- isn't that the one inevitability if he's reelected? that they will have -- >> no, sadly it's not. we've been talking about that
.s. competitiveness. let's get it under way. all right, jim. take it away. >> great to be here in detroit. first time in a while. have to make it happen more often. we are going to have a nice conversation. we have to cover a lot of things in 40 minutes, so we will start right away. you can look in the program and see the panelists and see their backgrounds. great panel. in the 40 minutes that we're going to try to cover, looking and infrastructure, education and immigration, trying to look at it through the lens of technology and the role of urban centers and take a look at what the current state is in the united states in each of these things, what some of our best practice competitors are doing, and may be a couple of suggestions on tactical things they can do to do a better job. it is a lot to cover in 40 minutes, and we will try to take some calls at the end if we can. without further ado, i want to ask vivek to start. you got to see lots of things. you had a great perspective on these three areas of the united states -- immigration, education, infrastructure. good to pick one and comment on the
is a journalist, jim lehrer is a journalist, i am a journalist, martha is a journalist, so we went there to be who we were and have a debate. i did not feel like they are trying to -- >> it is not advocacy, but it is doing what we do every day, which is providing clarity, asking questions, and hoping and pressing for answers. it is a different format for doing that. >> yes, sir. >> this year we have seen the rise of the fact checker and increasing the statements in both advertising and by the candidates. it seems that that has been on an uptick for a long time. i wonder, the thought occurs that -- this might be the people in each candidate's camp don't know each other. they say things that they would have tried out before had they been in contact with each other. might it be a good idea like a bipartisan policy center to sponsor a get together of a social nature between members of the heritage foundation and their families and the center for american progress? >> i wish beer could solve it. things are very polarized. >> i think all of the misstatements -- is literally ignorance. they don't look at
